Pixton for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.
– Ms. Sasscer, Teacher
My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!
– Ms. Franchois, Teacher
Highly engaging, easy to use software with clever functions allowing me to review and feedback to my class. I can think of loads of ways it could be used to demonstrate and evidence learning.
– Ms. Pulleine, Year 3 English
The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.
– Ms. Stein, 6th Grade English
We used Pixton for Schools as a tool to respond to independent reading of books. Students used the comic strip format to show characters' conflicts, story summary, and plot development. As a teacher I liked that all work and comments required my approval before publishing. The students liked the features, such as background choices and drawing tools to "build" their characters.
– Ms. Escott, Teacher
The students were highly motivated and carried out activities assigned to them with great interest.
– Mr. Ferrer, Grade 12
Pixton.com is unprecedented in making comic strip generation considerably simple. With its simple click-and-drag interface, Pixton enables its users with a fast, easy, and interactive way to create detailed and professional-looking comic strips.
– Jason Alyesh
Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.
– Ms. Mason, ESL Teacher
Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I have my students read an informational text and explain it in a comic. It is a rigorous assignment because they must take an informational reading and turn it into a narrative. The kids love it and so do I!
– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration
Using Pixton for Schools as a way for students to show what they know was brilliant. My students wrote a comic strip in Bahasa Indonesia.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.
– Ms. Lange, 7th Grade
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.
– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6
Using Pixton to create scenes from a play is a simple way for students to explore Shakespeare's texts in a graphic format. With Pixton's built-in graphics and templates, the user can make the most subtle facial expressions, as well as detailed hand and body positions.
– Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant
The kids loved it, and it was a user-friendly way of sending important Student Council messages to others in the school. The students were able to make simple comics, but they could also spend more time to create more complex ones.
– Ms. Levy, Teacher
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.
– Jutka Czirok, teacher
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th Grade
I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.
– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade Teacher
Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
In a creative project with specific learning standards, Pixton allowed students to collaborate in groups to produce an educational work that was fun to make and they were proud to share.
– Mr. Wellington, 8th Grade History
What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!
– iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer
Students have complete control over what they create, which they enjoy. The fact that things can be saved and worked on at a later date is valuable as well.
– Mr. Pinta, 7th Grade
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8
This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.
– Christy Crawford, Technology
It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
– Ms. in't Veld, Teacher-Librarian
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
Kids really enjoyed working on the comics, even out of school.
– Mr. Riehle, 7th Grade Teacher
Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Great experience with creativity and expressing ideas in static comic form. It was great to share each work with other classmates and be able to print to take home. I see many uses for Pixton in my classroom and in my school.
– Mr. Battisti, 6th Grade Humanities
Pixton was excellent! The students absolutely loved it and were really engaged in exploring the program and showing off their new skills. It just has so much potential.
– Ms. Harris, Technology
Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
Pixton for Schools provided my students the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned in sociology because they had to create a comic that illustrated it in a "real-world" scenario.
– Mr. Weedon, 12th Grade Sociology
The comic software was of great value. The students were able to develop and create various comics. The exposure allowed the students to incorporate art and ELA standards.
– Ms. Bolling, 6th Grade
Wonderful website. I loved how I could assign a project, create a rubric, have the kids self-assess, grade and give feeback. Pixton is my new favorite website.
– Ms. Kearns, 6th Grade Science
It helped me provide a creative outlet for my students so that they could showcase their literary skills in an interesting format.
– Ms. Ballard, 12th Grade
My students tried it out to create their own graphic novels after the reading of Maus by Art Spiegelman. My students said it was fun and they wish they had more time to use it!
